The day has finally arrived and families, schools, students and businesses from coast to coast are planning for excitement and disruption during the Great American Total Eclipse.
Please share your experiences with us on Facebook.
According to an interactive map on the Tennessean, in Monroe, Walton County, we get to see the moon cover 98.2 percent of the sun with the moon beginning to cover the sun’s path at 1:07 p.m. and continuing for 2 hours and 55 minutes. The Peak of the eclipse will be 2:38 p.m. Loganville’s eclipse starts a minute earlier, at 1:06 p.m. and they will get a 98 percent eclipse. Unfortunately, partly cloudy conditions are predicted for the local area during this time.
Since we will never see a total eclipse, there is no time that it can be looked at without protection. Those who managed to travel to a location that will be experiencing a total eclipse, however, can look at it with a naked eye during the total eclipse.
Are you ready?
If not, here is a link to everything Eclipse from NASA, including how to make your own if you were not able to get those elusive NASA approved Eclipse glasses. NASA will be covering the eclipse live from coast to coast, beginning at noon EDT. Here is a link to all the NASA sites with valid information on what you need to know to safely watch this special event.
